Megan + Parker were married at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in May. They had a Memorial Day weekend brunch wedding, which if you know me and my personal obsession with brunch (who isn’t obsessed with mimosas and Bloody Mary’s?) then you know we were a match made in wedding heaven. Megan got up really early to get ready, luckily she had some serious help from their adorable daughter Olivia.READ MORE

Jolyne + Brendan were married at Park Community Church in April and celebrated their reception at Garfield Park Conservatory. This was a particularly fun challenge for me because we planned the entire wedding in 11 weeks. They knew they were going to get engaged, so they reached out to me and luckily Garfield Park Conservatory had an April Saturday open. They jumped on it, he officially proposed in Florida while they were on vacation and we were off the the races.
I recently had the pleasure of creating some save-the-dates for a 50th anniversary party happening this summer in upstate New York. Inspired by a photo from Anne & John Fay’s 1963 wedding in County Kildare, Ireland I designed the piece to take a page from a photo album of yesteryear. Using a whimsical font, black and white photo prints, photo corners and luxurious letterpress we certainly set the mood for what will be quite the celebration. A #10, fig, paper source envelope and wraparound mailing labels completed the package. The Fay’s have been known to tool around town on their bicycle built for two and have enjoyed a bit of notoriety for it, so we paid a little homage to this most amazing pastime. Hope you like them as much as I do!
The Fay’s celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in upstate New York at the end of July. Here’s how the rest of the invitation suite turned out. Mighty fine, I’d say!
And they lived happily ever after!
It was early June when Sarah + Michael were married at the Quadrangle Club. Laura took charge of coordinating their day and we both agree they deserve the “chillest couple of all time” award. It was nearly unbelievable how relaxed and easygoing they were through the entire planning process and on the day of their most glorious wedding. Take for example the photo below, have you ever seen anything more stunning? I dare think not.
